The wall-climbing Geckobot

hot toys geckobot

Geckobots are robots that mimic the moves of a real gecko. They can even climb up walls and windows. But the best part is you assemble and wire it yourself.

The toy from Thames & Kosmos includes a battery-powered motor that triggers the robot's legs to move back and forth. Meanwhile, an air suction system allows it to walk vertically up and down smooth surfaces like glass, plastic and whiteboards.

Price: $50.
